I was simply changing the display resolution. It did not complain, but after I restarting I get the Sync: Out of Range message. I was hoping to unplug the monitor to telnet into the machine to change the settings back...no luck. The machine just stops after the Sync: Out of Range Message.


Any advice ?

Thanks

Still not working after changing resoluion....can't boot in safe mode

Nothing's working ....this is getting ridiculous.

Should I find another monitor or just reinstall OSX ?

I think that the resolution was off on the monitor, and the Mac was staring just fine... glad to hear you got it fixed!

What kind of monitor do you have? I had a simmular problem with a Viesonic monitor. I had to get a new Power Mac to fix the problem.
